More Stampotique tags…

Between last night and this morning I’ve managed three more tags. So much fun to make!



Another look at the first one, left here, and the next, right.  I knew I wanted to use the quote If you are going to be crazy you have to get paid for it or else you are going to be locked up but considering an image to use with it I  wasn’t sure that just a generic figure would work.  This one (which I call “skeletons in the wash” in my head) seemed to convey the locked up bit as well as any of them so I went with that. The text is Smargana Wakes printer on light blue card then snipped out and each word edged with black.   With all the text there wasn’t much room for anything else!







More bats and printed word blocks (this one is Stamp Act) and a Paper Artsy text stamp.  I used my Tattered Angels Turquoise glimmer mist for the grid and VERY disappointed with it.  The powder was totally mixed in, none on the bottom at all, and yet the spray shows NO shimmer at all on the tag.  I am going to dump in a spoonful of Pearl-Ex and see if I can boost it a bit.



I am particularly happy with the second one here – using the font 01digit (which is designed to be legible when used very, very small, in this case 6 pt) I printed the quote (Buy the ticket  Take the ride) on the ticket and slipped it into the hand of my creepy little friend.







I still have two I want to do: Call on God, but row away from the rocks and A word to the wise is infuriating although I am not 100% sure which of the remaining images work best with which quote.



It does occur to me these might have made a nice little ATC series, although I am not an ATC maker (Well, I *say* that, but I also always say I’m no stamper and yet ….. ) I have thought of giving them a go. but then I have to give them away and that is so HARD!
